Spectral Tiger Safari

Until now, the elusive Spectral Tiger Mount has been a steed for World of Warcraft Trading Card Game players only. The Spectral Tiger will be the grand prize of Blizzard's latest contest. The complete prize breakdown:
  • Grand Prize Winner: "Spectral Tiger loot card" from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, and one World of Warcraft TCG Expansion, "March of the Legion," booster box.
  • Second Prize: "Robotic Homing Chicken Loot Card," from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, and oneWorld of Warcraft TCG Expansion, "March of the Legion," booster box.
  • Three Runner's Up WinnersWorld of Warcraft TCG Expansion, "March of the Legion," booster box.

You don't have to play the card game to win. In order to enter all you have to do is submit an exciting screenshot of your character. Only submissions that include a chat bubble that says "Safari" will be accepted into the contest. Judges will be looking for high-quality, unmodified screenshots. Blizzard reminds you to "Use all the elements you can to give some spice to your pictures: landscape, monsters, other players, etc."

Why do you want a TCG card? The Spectral Tiger loot card has a code that translates into a rare in-game mount. The deadline for submission is 12:00 PM on March 5th. Check out Blizzard's official contest page for further information.

Good luck, and good hunting.

A new way to search for WoW mods

You know how it is. One of your favorite addons breaks down completely after a patch, so you go looking for the updated version, but then you realize you don't remember where you downloaded it. You check your favorite mods website, only to find that they only have the out-dated version. You end up having to check several different websites in order to find the update, and you wish there were a better way.

KitKatsFTW over in Europe has developed a simple solution: a site called "WoW Mod Search," which uses Google's custom engine to search through the four main WoW mod sites: WoW UI, WoW Interface, Curse, and WoWAce. The site is simple, unobtrusive, and aside from some google text ads, there's absolutely nothing to get in your way.

I use Inquisitor on Safari to quickly use shortcuts of any search engine without actually visiting the website itself first. If any of you out there are also using Inquisitor, or any similar search plugin, you should be able to just copy and paste this search url into your plugin preferences as a shortcut for quick access to WoW Mod Search later. (The "%@" in that link represents the space that will be replaced with your searched keywords when you use the plugin.)
